RBC Dominion Securities Inc. has filed a lawsuit in the Supreme Court of British Columbia against a former junior adviser for taking confidential data and using it to solicit clients, including those of his former superior. The suit complains that Lance Macdonald, who worked at an RBC branch in Kelowna, sent confidential information to his personal e-mail before he resigned in March, 2013. He then joined a competing branch owned by National Bank Financial Ltd., and started an "aggressive, targeted campaign" to solicit dozens of RBC clients.

The allegations are contained in a notice of application that RBC filed against Mr. Macdonald and National Bank on April 26, 2013, at the Vancouver courthouse. The firm says it is suffering irreparable harm, and is asking for an injunction that would prevent Mr. Macdonald from targeting its clients.
The remainder is available to Stockwatch subscribers.

if all it takes is a phone call or email to transfer $5.9m from RBC to NB Financial, then were those clients happy at RBC?
